As I’ve mentioned in this post, I bought a bluetooth mouse off Lazada. I also wrote I did question whether or not Lazada’s customer representatives had enough training to be able to tell the difference between a bluetooth mouse that has a physical Connect button and one that doesn’t have it, that is, one that can only be paired with pairing keys or pairing codes. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up sticking to the assumption that all bluetooth mice have a physical Connect button which you can press, in addition to the On-Off button, of course.
This is an example of a bluetooth mouse with a built-in Connect button.

This is the bluetooth mouse I bought from Lazada. No matter how many times you turn it over, you won’t see a Connect button in there aside from the On-Off function.
So now that we’ve clarified the two kinds of bluetooth mice you might come across, you can go ahead and watch the video below for the step-by-step guide on how to pair a bluetooth mouse without a Connect button to your Windows 8.1 tablet PC.
It’s always handy to have a bluetooth mouse as an option. In my case, I opted for the bluetooth mouse because my Asus Transformer detachable keyboard had this “ghosting” bug – intermittently it would be typing numerous backslashes on its own. I have not gotten around to having it fixed yet. For the meantime, I am using a third-party keyboard with sleeve for my tablet PC via a micro USB. Having a bluetooth mouse instead of the optical mouse assures me that the mouse doesn’t eat up my tablet PC’s scanty memory/storage capacity.
